The French defender of Sevilla FC Jules Koundé distinguished himself this Thursday in the Copa del Rey, scoring a nice but against Real Zaragoza. The Andalusian club qualified for the round of 16 (2-0).
In the anonymity of a round of 16 of the Copa del Rey against Real Zaragoza (D2), Jules Koundé came out of the shadows to score in a beautiful way his first goal of the season. Half an hour into the game, the French international (7 caps) allowed Sevilla FC to lead in score, with a beautiful cross strike (31st).
Upon receiving a center badly repelled by the opposing defense, the central defender did not ask himself a question when entering the area, chaining a control of the chest with an unstoppable half-volley from the right for Raton. In the second half, Mir doubled the score on a flashback for the Rojiblancos (69th) who qualified for the round of 16, just like Barça and Real Madrid on Wednesday night.
Already jewels against Rennes and Barcelona
But Jules Koundé is not at his trial gallop. If he scores little, the former Bordelais often gratifies his audience with great achievements. Last season, he notably scored his first goal in the Champions League with a good recovery in the area against Stade Rennais. A few weeks later, it was a bright slalom against FC Barcelona that surprised ter Stegen. It was also in the Copa del Rey, and as delicious as it was unexpected.
